How does the BCI Corporate Partnership work?
A Partnership Steering Group is elected by the Partners. In collaboration with the BCI Head Office they determine the key focus of the group’s activities and help to set the direction for the BCI in terms of thought leadership, including research projects and campaigns. They are a critical contributor to the success of the BCI and play a significant role in raising the awareness, understanding and uptake of BCM.
Regular meetings take place for all members to enable valuable networking opportunities, peer-to-peer information and knowledge exchange as well as the sharing of best practice. The BCI Principles of Membership govern this group to ensure a professional and confidential environment that protects the interests of its member Partners.
What are the goals of the BCI Corporate Partnership?
The BCI Corporate Partnership aims to lead the Business Continuity Management (BCM) industry coalition to create the environment for increased adoption and development of BCM practice and the sustainable growth of the BCM industry. In particular, the BCI Corporate Partnership aims to help small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) engage in BCM. SMEs are quite often the hardest hit by disruptions and by virtue of their company size, often the least prepared to cope with the impacts of any disruptions. Facilitating this process is a key objective of the BCI Corporate Partnership.
As the first point of call for the media, policy makers and the BCM industry the BCI Corporate Partnership is the key, news and policy-led commentator on BCM issues.
